Blood glucose needs to be controlled or diabetic fetopathy can result.

95 and below during fasting and 120 and below two to three hours after eating that's what my dietician said is normal.

My Dr told MD if my sugar got above 140 2 hrs after eating to call the office tosee if diet is the cause or if diabetes isn't being controlled well by diet alone. So depending on how long it was after eating I'd say call Dr.

You say Hb is 9. Do you mean your HbA1C?

It depends on when the blood sugar was taken. If you were fasting then it's extremely high I'd you had just eaten and depending on what you ate it could be okay.
